Alaska Positive Juried Photographic Exhibit postponed until 2016

As the construction of the new State Library, Archives, and Museum building progresses, Alaska Positive – the museum’s statewide juried photographic exhibition – will be postponed until 2016 when the museum reopens in the new State Library, Archives and Museum building. The call for entries will be in the spring of 2016 and the Alaska Positive exhibition will open in the fall of 2016.

Rarefied Light, the photography exhibit put on by the Alaska Photographic Center, will have their next call for entry in April of 2014. The juror will be renowned photographer Joyce Tenneson. The Anchorage Museum will host Tenneson for the Rarefied Light lecture and workshop July 24–27 and the exhibit will open at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center in October. The prospectus coming out in April will have detailed information about entries and workshop registration.
